JP Morgan Chase Foundation: Grants for Diseases

OVERVIEW: The JP Morgan Chase Foundation supports local, regional, and national disease organizations.  

IP TAKE: This corporate funder focuses its disease-related funding on a variety of issues including research, direct care, support and prevention.

PROFILE: The JP Morgan Chase Foundation is the philanthropic arm of the global financial services company JP Morgan Chase. Through its programs and grantmaking, the foundation aims to “[e]nable more people to contribute to and share in the rewards of a growing economy,” by “[t]aking a comprehensive approach...to make investments in four priority areas: Workforce Readiness, Small Business Expansion, Financial Capability, and Community Development.”

Although the JP Morgan Chase Foundation does not have a grantmaking program dedicated to diseases, its tax filings show an interest in this area. For example, organizations such as Breast Cancer Prevention Partners and the Huntington Disease Society of America are past grantees.

Grant amounts vary widely and can range anywhere from around $50 to over $750,000. Most grants however, typically fall in the $1,000 to $100,000 range. The foundation limits its grantmaking to geographic regions of the world in which it has a business and employee presence.

The JP Morgan Chase Foundation does not accept or review unsolicited letters of inquiry or grant proposals.
